    The city does not care. Their main purpose was to drive the gun stores out of business. Their form of ethnic cleansing. Saying it was about collecting tax dollars for gun safety programs is a smoke screen.

    I support Seattle gun stores and recently bought a safe from Outdoor Emporium. I offered my Oregon ID but was surprised to find out that gun safes are tax exempt in Washington. Social policy meets tax policy.

    I just heard the other night on the Jason Rantz show, KIRO radio, that the city expected a couple of a million dollars in wind fall taxes from this and as of last week have not received a single dime. "BRILLIANT"

    I was surprised to see a NO TAX sign on the safes at Bi Mart here in Vanc.

    You could say, they slit their own throats.
    Some should not play with sharp decisions.

    They'll find another way to bleed you (us)

    I have even heard adds on the radio for safes and the first thing they always say is no sales tax. Liberty Safes in Enumclaw I think.

    Yeah I bought a safe from Cabelas a couple months ago and no tax was collected then,too. Pretty cool that the gun safes are tax exempt, I think. I remember a few years ago when outdoor emporium partnered with children's hospital to give away free pistol safes to people with guns and kids in the home. I thought that was cool as well. I would love to support Seattle gun stores but they are getting harder to find! They should rename the tax and call it the "Big 5 shopper punishment plan" as it seems that Big 5 is going to be the sole source of revenue for this stupid scheme.

    The tax was sooo important because it would fund research and intervention programs to reduce gun violence. I'm guessing when they have a tax shortfall to fund the program, they will just use the little they get and put it in the general fund or use it to fight lawsuits against the tax. We all know they won't use other revenue to support this "must have" legislation.

    Bottom line, the tax was always to push gun stores out of Seattle, they know it, but you will only get them to admit it off-the-record.

    It's a very slippery slope when you start using tax policy in order to gain support for a political view.

    Oh right.....it's been that way for a longgggg time.

    @$#& Seattle.

    Not sure where that figure comes from; When they pushed it, my recollection was a projection of 1/2 million; Gun owners knew even that was total b.s.; The city claimed vendor tax-privacy rules to shield the actual amount taken as confidential. As commented above, it was always about forcing FFLs out of Seattle, it's worked.
